Trying New Foods with September Degustabox

I am back with another rather exciting box from Degustabox! I have shared all of my new finds from September's box, some of which I have completely loved!

Latin American Kitchen by Santa Maria

In Degustabox this month I received Yellow Rice and Peanut Sauce, I was so intrigued by this when I found it, I showed Phil what had arrived and we decided we must try it immediately! We paired it up with some chicken and only used about half the sauce which turned out to be the perfect amount of sauce, it wasn't too overpowering and the rice was delicious too.

Green & Black's Velvet Edition & Green's Egg Custard Mix

At first thought when this was in the box, what do I do with it? I turned over the packet of Egg Custard filling and was shown a recipe for Bread and Butter pudding, again wasn't too sure what to think, however upon thought, I am going to combine using the bar of Green & Blacks chocolate and the Egg Custard Filling to make a chocolate Bread and Butter Pudding, sounds dreamy right?

Nestle Cheerios Oat Crisp

Who doesn't love Cheerios? These Cheerios are mixed with delicious crunchy flakes which are made with whole grain oats. We've been loving having these for breakfast! They have been developed to help lower cholesterol and are high in fibre, low in saturated fat and contain ingredients to help keep your heart healthy. Always helpful right?!

San Miguel Gluten Free

This went straight to Phil, I believe I have seen him drink a San Miguel before so I took this on our trip to Birmingham and he had it in the hotel room. I imagine that this is really beneficial for people that need Gluten Free products, Beer that's gluten free, so good!

Mentos Mint Mix Sharing Pouch

I am one of the only people I know that like Peppermint and Spearmint, so when I saw this Pack of Mints that were mixed, I loved the idea! I love that they're also in the resealable packet, there's no way I could eat these in one or two or even five sittings, so I can grab a mint whenever I need to!

Dream Ancient Grains

This is one of two new flavours from Dream. The Ancient Grains is made with a blend of oat, spelt, buckwheat and linseed. With added Calcium and Vitamins these plant based milk alternatives taste really good and it is a bonus that there is no added sugar. This is right up my Mum's street so when I showed her this she couldn't wait to try it.

Knorr Concentrated Stock

This stock is definitely different from any that I have used before! It is made with real beef extract and is also Gluten Free. It is free from artificial preservatives and No added MSG. I added mine to some different mince beef dishes I was doing and it tasted delicious!

Virtue Energy Water

This is not the first time I have tried Virtue Energy Water. I personally love the Berries one, so I gave Phil the Lemon & Lime one. He loved it and we happened to find them in our local B&M so he picked up loads of cans! It contains zero sugar, zero calories, with no sweeteners. Yes it tastes delicious and it's an energy drink! 

Wild Planet Albacore Wild Tuna Steaks

I do love Tuna! It's the first time I've seen it say not to drain away the juices, instead you mix them into the tuna to mix with the Omega 3-rich juices for added flavour and nutrition. The tuna steaks are 100% pole and line caught, they are then hand packed and cooked just one to retain the juices.

That's it for the September Degustabox, I/We got to try so many new foods which I always find so exciting! Some of these I definitely know I will be going out to buy again. What do you think of these products?

You can use the code PU9SR, to get your first box for only £5.99, I can assure you it is worth it!

*The box and its contents were kindly gifted by Degustabox, but as always, all views and opinions are my own.
